Lewis Morris Apts., 1749 Grand Concourse, Bronx, New York, New York

It is noteworthy that the most prestigious address on the Grand Concourse became a Park Ave.-type building was classically detailed with no relation to Art Deco design.  Built in 1923, it was named after a signer of the Declaration of Independence, the tenant list was heavy on physicians.  The Pulitzer Prize-winning David Halberstam was son of one of those physicians.  Designed by Edward Raldiris, it was 13 stories from the back entrance on Walton Ave.
